How can I block seeing all the games my friends play on Facebook?
Step 1 : To block the unwanted Facebook game updates from your News Feed, log into your Facebook account.
Step 2 : Go to a post in your News Feed that contains an update from a friend on a Facebook online game. For instance, go to a FarmVille update.
Hover your mouse pointer over the update. You will notice that the word "Hide" and a small arrow appears in the upper right-hand corner of the message. Click on the arrow.
Step 3 : A small drop down box will appear giving you the choice to Hide this friend, or just "Hide FarmVille". Let's say you really like this friend, but you just don't want to know every time they lose a cow or plant more corn, so click on "Hide FarmVille".
You will see a message where the FarmVille post used to be that says, "Farmville has been hidden from your News Feed. In the future, you won't see posts from FarmVille."
There, you've done it! You've removed all present and future FarmVille posts from your well-meaning friends. And of course, this works for any Facebook Online Game that you don't want to hear about anymore - Enjoy!
Step 4 : If for some reason you change your mind and want to bring FarmVille back, go down to the bottom of your News Feed. At the bottom right of all your posts, you will see "Edit Options". Click on this, and a list will pop up showing all your blocked Games. Click on "Add To News Feed", and the game updates will be returned to your Facebook page until the cows come home, or you change your mind again!
